A team of 30 people, consisting of Paulig Group employees, family members and friends, gathered on Saturday 21st September in Tallinn to clean up some streets in Noblessner and Kopli districts. In just 2 hours, the team cleaned up 260 kg of litter – mainly small packages, plastic and cigarette ends. They ended the day with a waste-free TexMex lunch, eating tacos made of Santa Maria tortillas - which are also called „eatable plates“.
The vision of the World CleanUp Day is a clean and healthy waste free planet. The first World Cleanup Day took place in 2018 and it united 18 million people across 157 countries for the biggest waste collection day in human history. It was an epic 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe – beginning in New Zealand and travelling around the world before ending in Hawaii. The second World CleanUp Day took place on Saturday, 21st of September this year and it was estimated that over 160 countries all over the world will join the event. The World CleanUp Day is initiated by a group of people in Estonia.
